“Today, in Nimroz province, Iranian forces fired into Afghanistan, and the Afghan authorities retaliated. The situation is under control now. The Islamic Emirate does not want conflicts with its neighbors,” said a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior from Kabul, Abdul Nafi Takor.
The military confrontations resulted in the death of two border policemen from Iran and an Afghan soldier. Several people were injured.
The Iranian authorities decided to close the Milak-Zaranj customs point following the incident.
“Without respecting international law and good-neighborly relations, the Taliban forces opened fire on the Sasoli customs point, drawing a decisive response,” accused Qasem Rezaei, an official from the Iranian Police.
It is not clear what caused the incident, but there are disputes between Iran and Afghanistan over access to water resources. Iran accuses the Taliban regime in Afghanistan of violating a 1973 treaty by reducing the flow of the Helmand River to Iranian regions. The administration in Kabul rejected the accusations.
